  9. Very colourful - as are most Indian festivities. Although this one seems rather more organised and polished than those held within India.

  25. Isn't that wonderful to get to visit another country without leaving home! Love this sort of thing (of course if I were younger and richer I'd love to actually GO to the different country, but this festival would definitely be a great second best. ... and reading your blog post about it is almost as good.
